Sat 11.22.14 – Today I went over to Bolsa Chica Wetlands during low tide and had fun for over 40 minutes watching a Bird Party! at the water outflow pipes between the big wetland sections. Not only were the birds having a grand time of fishing for little fry and sardines, as well as the seagulls attempting to steal said fish from the terns while flying, but there were many photographers of various species and bird watchers. Thus it was not only fun to watch the antics of the birds, but also of the humans.

An Autumn Afternoon Walk at Irvine Regional Park

Fri 11.21.14 – This afternoon Scruffy, Belle, and I went on a walk at Irvine Regional Park in Orange to have the opportunity to enjoy the very brief spurt of autumn weather we are having and to possibly see some trees in their fall glory. It was lovely, the air was crisp-ish, the park was fairly empty of people, and the dogs had a great time sniffing all the smells.
